is a lexical-axis variable font designed for artist Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee. Simultaneously a character and a space, it contains basic alphabet, numerals, and punctuations lexically sorted into one glyph; one continuous motion. Together with code, the font explores the relationship between image, text, and sign through Lee’s site.
All 77 basic Latin letters, numerals, and punctuations are formed by a system of 4 circles and 8 squares, each moving on a 7 × 12 line grid in a continuous interpolated movement as a result of the variable type functionality. Placed within the glyph “7”, the typeface is imbued with details from Lee’s obsessions with Eastern and Western spiritual narratives, alchemy, astrology, I-ching, and more. Between all the recognisable letters are non-letters, not-yet words, meanings that never arrived. Each text on Lee’s website is traversable through the scroll, each like a destination; everything else in between, is slippage. Typeface work-in-progress (availability upon request).

is a creative studio that builds media worlds. With a focus on arts and cultural development, the studio celebrates imagination and creativity while leveraging on new media technologies to unveil new perspectives towards visual culture.
The identity of ToNewEntities (TNE) is inspired by creation myths, the logotype is envisioned as an object-in-motion, churning and forming something new, otherworldly. The type renders itself typographically inside its letters’ counter-spaces and apertures, lines set within text leading — reflecting the studio’s operational interests in the latent spaces/gaps, blank states, unexplored potentialities.
